mandolin restaurant

when sean fowler opened mandolin restaurant just around the corner from our house, we couldn't have been more stoked about having a neighborhood treasure within walking distance.


perfect for special occasions, a lazy sunday brunch, or an impromptu evening out, mandolin has been an almost weekly staple for us since opening in raleigh in two years ago.

with offerings as delicious as they are photo-worthy, the food is a celebration of fresh farm-to-table ingredients combined sean's extensive training in jackson hole and the esteemed fearrington house restaurant in chapel hill.

think party in the front, business in the back -- mandolin accomplishes what every fine dining restaurant aims to, but manages to keep it a casual and inviting destination that could easily tempt you on an evening stroll to pull up an outside table for dessert and a glass of wine. it's not surprising that i tend to end up overserved there (walking home is a plus!) -- the cocktails are too tasty to turn down, and the wine list is impressive. lizzie, sean's wife adds to the southern charm of the restaurant with her gorgeous flowers, inside and out.

some furbish friends and i spent a lovely evening with sean and lizzie last week, trying some of the stars of their seasonal menu.

now tell me this doesn't make your mouth water...

Totally random question and unrelated to food...but where did Leah get that adorable striped dress with scroll pattern on your instagram pics? I need.

The dress is from Anthropologie. I do not see it online but I purchased it at our local store this past week.

Obsessed with Mandolin. I'm also thrilled that an amazing restaurant finally located in that building. It was so sad when it was a revolving door for a few years there.
